Society Members are invited to the Society AGM which is to be held on  Monday 22nd May 2017 at 6.15pm  When arriving at the Shakespeare Centre, please use the entrance door marked ‘Main Reception’; this is to the left of the Visitor entrance (ie it is the set of doors furthest from the Birthplace).  The Wolfson Hall is on the first floor, opposite the stairs.  There is a lift available – please ask at Reception. 

An agenda will be sent out in due course but any member wishing to present a motion for consideration by the AGM should give notice in writing and sent to by the 8th May 2017. 

After the end of the AGM business, we conclude the celebration of the Society’s Fiftieth Anniversary with reminiscences from two distinguished former Chairmen, Ian Heggie and Bob Bearman.  We have invited them to speak about their period of leadership - the highs, lows, achievements and frustrations  - and to remind us all why the Society exists. We look forward to hearing from each of them in their own inimitable style. 

The bar will be open at the end of the meeting for members to enjoy a glass of wine or soft drink.
